A scene from one of Harold's pictures

How Halstead used to look

First published in News

The Gazette delves into the past again with these old postcards kindly sent in by Jean Francis.

They were produced by her father Harold Owen Evans, who used to live in Halstead.

Harold, who was always known a Jack, was born at 60 Head Street in a very small shop.

See more of Harold's pictures in this week's Gazette.
